Thank for the comments.

She was first registered in Mansfield in March 1981 and was bought by a farmer in a village near Hathersage, Derbyshire. It was then bought by two further farmers but has had 13 previous owners before me.

It has also been owned by folks in Exeter, Scotland and Salisbury.

Looks great, always good to see a shiny landy being actively enjoyed rather than just showcased 8)
